She's gone to SWM.Too late to change my mind. I'm sure you'll find plenty of other options to fill your tank at Matts. If you pop in, please say hello to her. She'll be the one critiquing "A Brief History of Time" whilst juggling flamin...oh hang on, she's gone. She's just a regular fish

It just means it's time to change out the rowaphos. The last lot has been in for 4 weeks instead of the usual 2-3 weeks. I'll run it a week and re-test with the hanna, twice and won't believe either of the results.

I really like the hanna checkers. Most of the bad rap comes from mis-use. They deliver consistent results against a sample ime which is what you want. Worst case is a little out (as with most kits) you can measure vs a ref solution and adjust reading.

I use em for Alk and phos and for both I also have salient and d-d respectively. Very similar results but hanna is easier to read and is quicker.

Ran, have you got a ref solution for phos? I too love my Hanna phos checker and always do two test and just average them

Pretty much spot on - I only did 2 tests but both were within 0.01 of ref (one up and one down). I find the hardest part is getting all of the reagent powder in and mixed. It is probably that causing the variance. TBH I can live with a very small margin. The difference in ease to read makes up it ten time over!

That's what I struggle with too. Those packets were made and designed by Satan himself.
